You are about to wrap up breakfast with the kids and they ask “WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TODAY?” No need to waste precious family time on the internet looking for places to go to for family fun. No need to worry if this place or that place is going to fulfill your expectations. It’s the Play Milwaukee deck of cards to the rescue. A deck of cards: each card represents a different place offering family fun.
Local educators, Julie Stephens and Louisa Marks, traveled around Milwaukee and chose 20 places for family fun. “The rule we used as we picked the 20 places is would we want to take our own kids here?” says Julie. Another problem for taking the whole family out is that it can become expensive super-fast. So each card offers a minimum of $10 discount to the place but the entire deck boasts a combined savings of over $400. WOW!!!! All of the great deals can be viewed at playyourcity.org
But wait, how come there are 21 cards in the deck? “Well, we didn’t want to forget the caregiver so we included a card to Neroli for some well-deserved parental TLC”.
Play Milwaukee is all about families having fun and spending time together. We are in awe of the services that Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin® offers to families of children spending time at local hospitals. We know that these services can only be offered if everyone does their part to raise funds for RMHC. “Julie and I are so honored to partner Play Milwaukee decks with RMHC and help them raise funds.” RMHC receives $10 from every Play Milwaukee deck sold.

Julie Stephens and Louisa Marks have much in common even though at quite different stages in their lives. While Julie is the mother of young boys, Louisa’s an empty nester with 3 girls in college. Both women work as educators. Julie teaches psychology at a local university and Louisa was a resource teacher at an urban Milwaukee school. The idea of connecting families to fun in their community was born in a gym locker room after a workout. “Milwaukee has been such a great place for me to raise my girls,” says Louisa. Julie agrees that every family should get out and explore their town. Play Milwaukee was born out of the ladies’ love for Milwaukee and all the great places here that provide family fun.
